Bankwatch input to the EBRD's public information policy review - stage one: comments on the existing policy
Policy comments | January 28, 2011 | Download PDF
On 22 December 2010, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) launched its triennial revision of the public information policy (PIP).
Bankwatch's submission draws heavily on earlier comments (pdf) provided by Bankwatch and the Global Transparency Initiative during the 2007/2008 PIP review but also includes amendments from our experiences with the current policy's implementation. A particular cause for concern is the lack of transparency in case of global loans given to financial intermediaries.
